Tachyon 390 Cross Assembler and
Tachyon z/Assembler 2.2 Announcement

February 3, 2002:
Tachyon Software is pleased to announce the availability of version 2.2 of the Tachyon z/Assembler and Tachyon 390 Cross Assembler.

The Tachyon z/Assembler can now assemble the output of the free, open-source GCC C-language compiler, generating object files for z/OS, OS/390 and Linux for S/390 and zSeries. This C compiler interface is free and does not require the purchase of a license from Tachyon Software. With the availability of the open-source LIB390 C library, C programs can now be built for OS/390 and z/OS using the highly optimizing GCC compiler.

Other enhancements in version 2.2 of both the Tachyon 390 Cross Assembler and the Tachyon z/Assembler include:

  • New DBCS, INFO and PESTOP options for compatibility with IBM’s HLASM.
  • New NOSYSLIN and NOSYSPUNCH options, allowing the object file format to be specified via the OBJECT option while supressing the actual creation of the file.
  • New LINEWIDTH(USS) option to specify that the listing file is to be created in EBCDIC as an OS/390 Unix System Services format text file.
  • The maximum external name length and ALIAS operand value has been increased to 32767 characters for full support of the z/OS 1.3 Binder.

Details of the changes in this release are available in the Changes section of the Tachyon 390 Cross Assembler and Tachyon z/Assembler User’s Guide.
